A really good column by Norman Solomon. As I told him, he only missed one great quotation from NBC reporter David Bloom (when he was embedded with the troops): From New York Times, March 25, 2003: "The coverage of the Iraq war, especially on television, began in a glow of shared purpose. "I can tell you that these soldiers have been amazing to us," said David Bloom, an NBC News correspondent traveling with the Third Infantry. While pledging objectivity, he added, "They have done anything and everything that we could ask of them, and we in turn are trying to return the favor by doing anything and everything that they can ask of us."
